I always enjoy the start of a new year. It's a chance to wipe the slate clean, set new goals and put learnings from the past year to good use. While I know that you can (and should) to do all these things during the year as well, the beginning of a fresh new one always inspires new beginnings and optimism for the future. So, with all that said and as I alluded to in my last post, I have one rather major sewing goal for this shiny brand new year...
In 2014, I will not buy any new or new-to-me clothing. I will sew every garment I need with the exception of underwear, socks, stockings and shoes.
Yup, you read it right here folks!
I'm also going to be writing a regular series on my blog about how to incorporate Me-Mades into your current wardrobe, break down the daunting task of beginning to make a Me-Made wardrobe in the first place, post regular outfit posts of me wearing my Me-Mades in my every day life and have a bunch of helpful tutorials, links and interviews on making a Me-Made wardrobe as well as how to incorporate more Me-Mades into your home.
All of these posts will of course have a slight vintage lean, but I hope that everything I have to say about the subject will translate well into any style or look you may be going for.
I'm pretty excited about all of the things I have planned, and I hope you, my fellow sewists, readers, dabblers, lurkers, tea (and coffee) drinkers, cat-lovers and vintage enthusiasts, will find at least something inspiring or of use to you this year.
Here is to a happy 2014, filled with lots of Me-Mades, cheer and good fun!
